CWGC Somme Battlefield Companion – Available to Order Now

08 September 2016

We are delighted to announce the launch of the CWGC Somme Battlefield Companion!

The Battle of the Somme is remembered as one of the bloodiest and most important campaigns of the war.

In an offensive which lasted nearly five months, men from every part of Britain and across the British Empire took part. When the offensive halted in November, more than 1,000,000 British Empire, French and German servicemen had been wounded, captured or killed.

The cemeteries and memorials built and cared for by the CWGC are a permanent reminder of the fighting which took place.

Published in partnership with Osprey, this weather-resistant battlefield companion explores 30 locations on the Somme. 

Complete with suggested driving routes, sites to visit and some of the lesser-known stories surrounding the battlefield, this is an invaluable resource for anyone travelling to the Somme this centenary year.

Together, the trails form a moving journey through this landscape of memory.
